BASIC TALKS ~ Sue Rainsford, presented in conjunction with Periodical Review #8

1pm, Friday 14th December 2018 at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane

Sue Rainsford is a writer and researcher based in Dublin, Ireland. Her practice is concerned with hybrid, lyric and embodied texts, explicit fusions of critical and corporeal enquiry, as well as with material transcriptions of otherness and experiences that alter our understanding of flesh. A graduate of Trinity College, IADT and Bennington College, Vermont, she is a recipient of the Visual Artists’ Ireland/Dublin City Council Art Writing Award (2017/2018), the Irish Arts Council Literature Bursary Award (2013 & 2018) and a visual arts writer in residence at Roscommon Arts Centre (2018-2019). She was recently awarded a fellowship at the MacDowell Colony, New Hampshire, and her debut novel Follow Me To Ground is available from New Island Books.
